Combining dentistry and the arts: My journey to dental school

Since I started walking, my feet were always on the move, trying to mimic the dancers I saw on television. When I was old enough for dance lessons, I enrolled in pre-ballet class, moving on to ballet, tap, hip-hop and jazz as the years went by. Dancing was a passion I discovered fairly early in life and, surprisingly, so was dentistry.

Diversity + Outreach

Diversity and the dental school experience

On May 21, ASDA celebrated the United Nations’ World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development for the third consecutive year. According to the UN, “The day provides us with an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity … [it] is a driving force of development, not only with respect to economic growth, but also as a means of leading a more fulfilling intellectual, emotional, moral and spiritual life.”
